Tarra and Bella

Eight years ago a small white dog wandered into The Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tennessee. She befriended an elephant named Tarra, one of twenty-four elephants who have found sanctuary there since it opened in 1995. The dog, Bella, and Tarra became inseparable and the story of their close friendship was covered by CBS News correspondent Steve Hartman in 2009. Sadly, a few weeks ago Bella was found dead, probably attacked by coyotes. Again, Steve Hartman covered the story for CBS News. You can view his piece below. Tarra's devotion to Bella will touch your heart.
